What are some films with scenes involving locks?

Can you think of films with scenes in which a lock (or locker, safe, handcuffs, etc.) is prominent and integral to the plot? I am helping compile a montage of scenes involving locks (like Dial M for Murder key hiding, or Gaslight desk lock opening). Heist films, people getting out of handcuffs, locks being picked -- these things would all be helpful.

Help me identify this short film.

Help me identify this short film. A man was having dinner in a big table when he notices the figure of an old lady through the shadows of the room next to where he was eating. Although there were more people with him he was the only one that saw her. When he finished he asks one of the servants if there was an old woman working in the house. He is told that indeed there was a lady with his description but that she had died earlier that day.
